Cris and Kim, I would like to just make a sugestion. You know how you have the Ford section devided up with the N section and then just a Ford section. My thoughts are on the John Deere section if you could do something like that spliting the 2 Cylinder erra from the New Generation and up area. I think there are a a lot like me that are only interested in the 2 Cylinder area and not at all interested in the 3010-4010 and up tractors and having to hunt thru all the new tractor questions to find any posts on the 2 cylinder area makes us just skip looking. Also on the Farmal section if you could make a letter tractor section seperate from the later number section. Just a thought. When I first came on here in the late 90's very little on the tractors from the 60's up but now it is just the opposite and having all posts mixed together makes it harder for us to find what we are looking for. And I was well satified with my parts order from a couple of months back. Leroy

The JD one really makes since because they are different animals completely. If only we would have thought about it at the first, but I don't think we expected that eventually the "modern" tractors would be antiques as they are now. People are even restoring Kubotas nowadays.

On the Farmalls, it's actually less clear. The numbered series are very clearly the same machine with improvements in some cases.

Adding in forums is a big deal though, and there have been some good ideas for that. Especially for those Modern Antiques, we really should have a better place. But for the foreseeable future, just getting the new YT server in has all the attention right now. It's a massive switchover and risky (though the Tractorshed switchover turned out to be a non-event fortunately). After that is done, we can start looking at changes.

It was just a thought that I thought I would throw out at you. The Farmall if it could be figured out for including the 350 & 450 modes with the letter it would be in same family of tractors but like the 12XX series is way different. Not familuar with models newer than the 450.

No worse than the Oliver/Cockshutt forum. I'm not complaining at all about the two being on one forum,but when you get down to it,they were only the same tractors prior to 1946 and after 1962. The ones between 46 and 62 were totally different tractors. Then when you throw in the Whites,well,I go to the Moline forum from time to time because the Whites replaced the Molines too,not just the Olivers and Cockshutts.

Never hurts to learn something new now and then when reading about things you don't have.
